Canadian Forces Base Kingston plans on contracting out cleaning staff jobs to a private company instead of using public sector workers represented by PSAC. These workers have provided high-quality and dependable service to the base for years.
We know what happens when you contract out good paying public sector jobs to for-profit, private companies - service quality is reduced and good jobs are lost.
Our military deserves well-maintained facilities. Base Kingston is doing a disservice to its people and the Kingston community by removing nearly 100 good jobs from the workforce.
The Base Command has even admitted that contracting-out these jobs will not save any money, but it will turn middle-class jobs into precarious work.
Please sign our online petition to urge the Canadian Forces Base to reconsider privatizing its cleaning services.
Sharon DeSousa, PSAC Ontario Regional Executive Vice-President
